The busy life of an active family, and the sometimes fussy eating habits of children, can result in your little ones not always getting enough of the essential vitamins and minerals they need for building and supporting strong bodies. Research shows that many children have inadequate intake of important micronutrients. Even children who appear healthy can have subclinical nutritional deficiencies.
The research also shows that a quality daily multivitamin/multimineral supplement can fill in the gaps and provide optimal nutrition for health and development. A complete range of vitamins and minerals is needed to form and maintain healthy teeth, bones, skin, nerves and brain tissue, and to support metabolism and red blood cell formation, and strengthen connective tissue, muscles, and the immune system.
Treehouse Multi Vitamin with Minerals provides peace of mind for you while giving nutritional support to your children. They contain essential nutrients, with NO artificial colours, flavours, preservatives, or aspartame. Kids age 3 and up will love them because they taste great and they’re shaped like Max & Ruby.

Research in brief
A young, growing body requires a complete spectrum of vitamins and minerals. Even children who appear healthy can have subclinical deficiencies of essential micronutrients and this can impair growth and development (Singh, 2004). An American clinical trial studied 633 preschool children and found that many were deficient in vitamins and minerals. Children who received a daily supplement showed improved growth, gaining an extra 5.1 mm in height per year compared to children receiving placebo (Sazawal et al., 2010). For “health insurance” against subclinical deficiencies, a quality supplement can ensure optimal nutrition.
Nutritional deficiencies are also seen in children who have a restricted diet, including those with food allergies, gluten intolerance, poor appetite or picky eating habits, and those who eat a vegetarian or vegan diet (Kirby et al., 2009). In such cases, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends a daily supplement, such as a chewable vitamin (Schor, 2004).
